@Sandi Amorim @LolaSpeaking And I love that you love that I love this. :) (this could go on for awhile).
I like to think I'm included in #14, #79 since every time we do #14 one of us cries and that we share #'s 67 & 69 (*giggle*),
I'm totally gonna do one!

I have been suffering for 3.5 weeks. Where the heck was this post earlier? :) Thank you for writing it today. It's quite possible I wouldn't have listened until today. Today..I kick a**!

Come on a trip with me? I mean besides Portland! Let's go ziplining somewhere. OR bungy jump off a bridge..although I don't want to bungy jump cause I think it's dumb to jump off a perfectly goo0d bridge..but I"ll totally take your photo while YOU do it...or maybe you can take me to the capilano suspension bridge and hold my hand cause it totally freaks me out...:) I am SO excited to see what your year looks like! xoxoxo

@iSalesGirl @LolaSpeaking Thank you! Yes. it sure was. And still continues to be as I am forever the hugger girl. https://www.facebook.com/pages/2011-The-Year-of-Hugging-Fearlessly/202367986458316?fref=ts

Beautiful. Thank you for writing this. I was just dropping my car off for detailing this morning and the woman who took my keys said to me "You look really familiar...where do I know you from?" And after a few minutes of trying to figure it out, I said to her..."It's possible you've seen me on tv or in the paper, and I don't mean to sound obnoxious, but I did a hugging project for a year, and it was all over the news etc." She then smiled and asked me to tell her about it. "I hugged one new person every single day for 365 days in an effort to connect personally given the digital world we live in." She smiled so big, I thought her face might actually hurt. I didn't get a chance to hug her but I think I will when I go and pick up my car. I love all your posts, but I think this one is my absolute favorite. ever. xo
@Lori There is so much to think about. I am a blogger. 3 different blogs. My last post? Gosh, I hadn't even thought about it. Oh that's frightening to think about. Gives me chills. I promise to do that tho. For all 3. I haven't made any plans for anyone to tend to my affairs, but you've just made me realize it's time to do so.

I'm sorry to hear of your brother in laws passing and I thank you for sharing it here. I met Sandi Amorim online before I ever met her in person, and my life would not be the same were she to die. It's important to share. I hadn't thought of a list..passwords and such. A great idea. Thank you for that. I'll take care of that. and in the meantime, may you and your family have the time you need to grieve the loss of someone so dear to you.
@Sandi Amorim You know me... I'm a big fan of jacking things up.

@Carol Hess /CAROL!!!! I'm so glad you like the game of tag. I love it too! Sandi's post was the perfect thing for me to read this morning, 1st thing, and it just sparked something. I too appreciate YOU for being a part of this super cool/equally nerdy crew!
Holy macaroni! I made the list? wow! Thank you!
I love and appreciate you Sandi for being someone who refuses to live a toned down life. You make it so easy for me to live a life filled with bright colours and way too much enthusiasm!
I love and appreciate the amazing people I have in my life who just love and appreciate me.
I love and appreciate that today is friday. Not because it's payday or because the weekend is coming. No. I love and appreciate every single day. So Friday gets my love today.
I love and appreciate being someone people can call when they need something. Or they just need to share something. I love being that person.
I love and appreciate how often people will email me just to say thank you. Thank you for that.
I could go on forever. I guess I should leave room for others to chime in. ha! But you just gave me an idea. Thank you. I love and appreciate you for your inspiration. Constantly.

I don't love the term "bucket list" but I call mine a "life list". Things I want to do in my life right now, that will enhance my life RIGHT NOW vs. making sure I do them before I die. Not so empowering. I love that i have a fluid list that I can constantly add to. I have been making life lists since 1996 and my most recently one i started in 2006. I have 231 items on it right now and I just keep adding to it. And crossing things off. Every time I plan a trip I make sure that I have something on the list that I can cross off while I'm there. It's been an amazing way to live my life. If I'm not sure what to do, I consult my list. If I want to go away for a long weekend but am not sure where to go, I consult my list. If I ever start a sentence with "I've always wanted to.." then I add that thing to my list. It's been such an amazing, inspired and remarkable way to live my life.
I'm happy to see others doing the same. Love that!
PS you asked on Twitter how I found you - someone else tweeted this link and I happen to follow that person and saw it. Easy.

@Ellen Berg BAM indeed. I felt like she'd hit me with a 2x4 this morning. It was awesome
@Sandi Amorim I love everything about your reply to Rita's post Sandi. "cloak" "compro-misery" "chuck" and "schtick" love love love them all!
@Sandi Amorim I realized as I was opening the curtains in my bedroom to leave for the day, my curtain rod fell off and one of the silliest things I've been tolerating is my curtain rod not being supportive enough for my beautiful curtains in the sanctuary that is my bedroom. And then it becomes just like any other room. I didn't put as much effort into designing it if i'm going to be okay with a curtain rod that's going to fall down every few weeks. No way. It's so perfect. I don't tolerate a lot of bit shit in my life, but I most certainly tolerate the little things. So thank you for writing this!
FUCKING AWESOME! :) LOVE this!!! And BOOM for a Monday! Thanks Sandi!
I freaking LOVE this! (I don't know a lot of people who use the "balls to the wall" expression like I do! So awesome! Thank you! THANK YOU for writing this. I am getting a little tired of hearing the word "try" come out of the mouths of so many. THIS is just the kick in the ass some might need. Love it! Thank you for writing it.

@Erin F. @TheJackB Yes and I am a big fan of language myself...but I don't separate the 2 when it comes to Love :)
2 years, 9 months ago on Are We Limited by the Language of Love?
@Erin F. @TheJackB I totally get that. Thanks for clarifying what you were saying about cliches. I love that this discussion has gotten to where it has. Love is a word that means many things to many people. I would likely not passionately discuss the merits of another word with anyone. but Love..it means what it means to me or you or TheJackB or Lori or anyone else participating in this discussion. Love is an experience. I stand by that.
@TheJackB And as far as I'm concerned, if I love you (and don't freak out, I'm just using it as an example), you'll know. And I'll shout it from the rooftops, and I'll text it to you and share it with you and I'll likely tell you when I hug you goodbye. Because you would matter to me. And it would mean THE WORLD to share it.
@TheJackB I am a big fan of preserving something...but clearly not when it comes to love. It isn't as though I walk around in the world loving EVERYTHING. But when I love something..I love boldly. I lovely freely and I love out loud. Living my life like that, gives me an altered experience of life. It's the most generous thing I can do...be. AND have.
@Erin F. @TheJackB I don't understand the connection with cliches. Can you say more about that? And also, I'd just like to remind you that we gave meaning to words...so we can change it anytime we like.
@Lori @SocialMediaDDS As promised..here's the link to the post I wrote. I am LOVING this discussion FYI http://cinderitaadventures.blogspot.ca/2012/06/love-is-not-complicated.html
@TheJackB I beg to differ. I think the more love we allow ourselves to experience, the more intense the experience of loving another human being. And "overuse" is a made up word/term for something that we've gotten sick of. Only because we said it was overplayed, or overused. But different perspectives are what make the world go round.!
@Lori @SocialMediaDDS Yes, I will share my post. You've both given me a lot to think about, and the more I think about it, the more strongly and passionately I believe that LOVE is meant to be expressed whenever possible. The more we express it, the more there is in the world and the more people feel it. We think that we have to hold onto it for only certain someones...but really...there isn't a single person in the world who doesn't deserve our love, no matter what we might think of them...and quite frankly..Big Red is worth loving. :)
@SocialMediaDDS Just like you can't be sort of pregnant, you can't be sort of in love. you either are or you're not. there's not really any room for grey.
@SocialMediaDDS Yes, but who says? Who says that love is intense on any level? What if love just is? What if love isn't a word that we use to describe something? What if Love is simply an experience we have? Who then gets to say it's inadequate or an adequate amount? We made up the definition. A long time ago, someone, a human someone, sat down and decided that love meant something...and then we live like it's true. What if love just is? What IF? What then? Love is not a feeling. Love is an experience and love is an action word. We can talk till we are blue in the face about how much we love something or someone, but until we take an action called "loving something" does it really mean anything? It's such an awesome and interesting topic for me today. I wrote a post about it today as well, sort of inspired by this post, but mostly something that's been running around in my head for awhile. We are so stingy with our love. With our experience of love, in sharing it and in expressing it. We don't want it to mean anything less if we "over use" the word, but how can you possibly overuse a word? Words are meant to be spoken. To be expressed. Are we not being stingy? Oh I could continue with this topic all day. So awesome.
Love is love is love. If you love the wrap with garlic, cucumbers etc. than love it. Experience the awesomeness that is that wrap. If you love your dog..than experience that love. your dog will experience the love right along with you. love is not something that comes from outside of us. it's inside us. love is love is love. it doesn't matter if you are referring to a stick of Big Red gum (which I love) or if you are in love with the man (or woman) in your life. love is love is love. love itself implies something...why make it complicated?
What if the super sexy guy was a geek in school and he grew into his looks? I always wonder that about people. I am one of those people. More geek than popular in school, and now the opposite. And I dfefinitely grew into my looks. :) Love this! Love that you describe geeks as dead sexy! You're right. There is something super sexy about the one's you can't really figure out...and they are usually the freakier ones behind closed doors too. A big plus.

I think the thing about getting "shot down" is that the more practice you get, the easier it gets. It's like flexing a muscle isn't it? One we're not used to flexing. The "I might get rejected" muscle. But the fact that you're still willing to approach, chat, ask, that speaks volumes. I say way to go. I read somewhere that women need to go out with at least 100 men before they meet a keeper. Let's say the same is true for men....at least you know that once you hit 101, you're laughing!

I participated in a Flash Mob 2 summers ago and it was the funnest experience EVER! And I did another one last christmas singing with 400 others at the mall in the middle of the day, unexpectedly. It was awesome also. My favorite is the Disney Engagement (Bruno Mars, Marry Me is the song) if you haven't seen it and also, the Welcome - TMobile at Heathrow. Watch them if you haven't seen them. You will LOVE them!
